That was a good one. Interesting perspective.

There definitely is a lot of ... um, "stuff" that public companies have to put up with, mostly driven by Wall Street's focus on the next quarter. No desire in playing that game keeps many companies private -- Trader Joe's, for instance. And TMF, for that matter.

Was talking this over with Jason Moser (TMFJMo) just now and he asked if EXPD would go private. Had to say, from what I know, I don't think so. I don't think Rose would cry a single tear if it happened, but I also don't think he'd do it himself. He's had nearly 20 years to do it if he really wanted to. And his commitment to all stakeholders, including shareholders, comes through loud and clear in these 8-Ks.

Cheers,
Jim
